Sometimes nature sucks.  Believe me, I know, I worked in nature for a year.

Sometimes nature is a chipmunk that likes to jump into your garden and eat your ripe tomatoes.  And leave traces of said eaten tomatoes all over the garden and patio as if to say "your fence stinks."

Sometimes nature is a groundhog that likes to climb over your fence (yes, that actually happened), realize it's trapped in your garden, and crush your zucchini plant in a panic.

Sometimes nature is a zucchini plant that refuses to provide for you, even after you try fertilizing it by hand and even though everyone else is getting overrun by giant zucchinis.  So what do you do?  You rip that zucchini plant out of the ground because that little plot you fenced off for your garden is already overloaded beyond capacity.

But sometimes nature is really awesome, in the form of a golden orb spider, that has spun her web between your tomato plants and is wrapping a bug that she just caught and eating it right before your eyes.  Crazy.

I guess nature is still pretty cool after all.


  1. I am not liking what Nature has done to my plants this year! The heat left me with no raspberries and no zucchini. I like Nature other times, just not with my plants!

  2. @Erin I'm glad I'm not the only one in the zucchini-less boat! No raspberries is very sad though, hope you were able to get something out of your garden!
